Only he wouldn’t put it like that.
Today’s feature on RLT Cinema comes from the late George Carlin, whose “Seven Words You Can’t Say on Television” is a classic in stand-up comedy (but beware for those of you who think you can’t poison your ears with dirty words). Several years ago, Carlin did an HBO special where he skewered religion, specifically Christianity. The clip is a shade over ten minutes, so it’s a little lengthy. If you’ve been a Christian for awhile, your immediate reaction will be, “Oh my, he can’t say those things! I can’t watch this!” Instead, listen to what he’s saying. He brings up some legit concerns with “organized religion” that turn many people off.

If you’re a follower of Jesus, how do you respond to Carlin’s observations? If you’re not, what are some of the objections you have to Christianity?
